  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 2 1/2 cups strawberry puree (about 1 pint fresh strawberries, hulled)
  • 2 cups fresh lemon juice
  • 5 cups cold water

Optional garnish

  • lemon slices
  • strawberry slices
  • mint


  • Add sugar to a gallon pitcher and pour hot water over sugar, stirring to dissolve. Add strawberries to a blender or food processor and puree. Add the strawberry puree, fresh lemon juice, and cold water to the pitcher. Stir until well-combined. Refrigerate until ready to serve. When ready to serve, add ice, fresh lemon slices, fresh strawberry slices, and/ or mint, if desired. Keep refrigerated.


Strawberry lemonade will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days without the fresh fruit or mint added to the liquid. 
Kid-Friendly Version:
If your children do not enjoy the pulp of strawberries, strain the strawberry puree through a fine mesh strainer before adding to the pitcher.
